Funk You

LP (Item 24742) Prestige, 1969 — Condition: Very Good+

A very cooking set by this great 60s organist – and one that has him leading a 2-horn frontline that includes Sonny Stitt and Charles McPherson. Pat Martino's on guitar, and Patterson's longtime drummer Billy James plays with a nice free style. Lots of nice tracks – like "My Man String", "Funk In 3/4", "Ratio & Proportion", and "Little Angie".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Green label pressing. Label has a small bit of pencil, and back has a few very light, small notes – but this is a great copy overall.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Life Force
Prestige, 1968. Very Good-

A monster – and Charles Earland's second album for Prestige, the follow-up to his groundbreaking Black Talk album!

Sorcerer
Columbia, 1967. Very Good+
Another bold new direction for the legendary Miles Davis Quintet of the 60s – a set that has some of the angular styles of earlier albums, but also a bit more of the flowing grace to come in the electric years! A key illustration of this is the leadoff track "Prince Of Darkness" ... LP, Vinyl record album
